Patton Oswalt 

Three things delight us about Patton Oswalt: He has the best joke about KFC Bowls we've ever heard (we've heard two). He lived in S.F. when he was poor. He worshiped David Foster Wallace and gave a commencement address at his old high school that mimicked, in a funnier and much more punctuated way, the one Wallace gave at Kenyon College in 2005 -- both can be summed up as, "Kids, don't be assholes!" Patton appears in S.F. for nine shows, the last two on New Year's Eve. Miss any at your own peril.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
